Oil painting by Nora Dewey
Painted en plein air at the lagoon. One of my favorite pieces. Always feels great to get outside and paint my favorite things: Eucalyptus, water, distant hills, sunny sky.
Painting must be picked up at the Off Track Gallery. Arrangements will need to be made between artist and customer.
"Batiquitos Eucalyptus" oil painting
I have lived in North County all of my life, and traveled up and down California. The California coast is my favorite place, and inspires me with its beautiful views and gentle light. Painting allows me to express this love, and I hope viewers will sense a similar emotion when viewing my work.
I paint mostly from photographs, as a camera best captures quickly changing scenes and light. Occasionally I will paint "en plein air", which sharpens my ability to accurately see color and helps me to concentrate on basic shapes and composition.
